The best Fado Houses in Porto
If there’s something that Porto has to offer are Fado Houses. Whether with professional or amateur artists, good music and great food are guaranteed. We leave here our suggestions for an itinerary not to be missed:
Adega Rio Douro
During the afternoons on Tuesdays at Adega Rio Douro, it is a rush between the kitchen and the tables. All of this to serve the famous snacks, something that can’t be missed when it’s Fado day.
Where? Rua do Ouro 223, Porto 4150-553, Portugal
Tasquinha D'Ouro 2
Here have passed fadistas such as Amália Rodrigues, Carlos do Carmo, Dulce Pontes and Ana Moura. It is during dinner that you have the opportunity to listen to professional Fado. The menu is cod à Braga or octopus à lagareiro, to accompany the Fado.
Where? Rua Outeirinho 13
Far away from downtown tourist spots, every Friday from 4:30PM to 7:30PM, you can listen to Fado accompanied by typical Portuguese dishes with an affordable price.
Where? Travessa de Miraflor, 15, Campanhã
Taberna Real do Fado

Where? Rua Dr. Barbosa de Castro, 58, Porto
Casa da Mariquinhas
